Netflix/Blockbuster Here I Come

I just received my latest cable company bill and was surprised by yet another increase that occured over the last year. Thanks a lot RCN. This time the Showtime/Starz/Cinemax/ETC channels went up to $30 a month. Overall, it is not a bad price if you watch a lot of movies. We used to and always grabbed stuff ON DEMAND since what we wanted to watch was never on when we wanted. Lately, a lot of the movies suck or we just have no interest in. Plus, the ON DEMAND menus are becoming slower and slower with RCN to navigate. It looks like I am dropping the premium movie channels at the end of the billing cycle.The only thing that really sucks is they group the digital music channels with the movie channels. I will definetly miss those 40+ music channels.

In its place I was thinking of either restarting my Blockbuster Online account or starting up with Netflix. Both companies have great response times on delivery and the selections are pretty damn close.

Hopefully my next cable/internet/phone bill will be below $150.

Too bad Gamefly got too expensive or I would restart that service as well.

Deforrestation of Animal Crossing

It is time to give up one of the first games that I overplayed on my Nintendo DS, and of course it is another game a grown gaming man should not be playing…Animal Crossing Wild World. One of those damn addicting games that we played at work. A stupid time wasting, item collecting, fishing, bug catching game. I traded this game away on Trade Games Now for Zelda Minish Cap. Good score for both parties.

If you know me, as the guys at work do. You do not want me visiting your ACWW town. I leave trash hidden behind houses so you never find it. I teach my residents curse words and sexual and racial innuendos in hopes that they spread their vulgar hate to younger children. So, to seal this deal I decided to go all out and leave my town in shambles for the next gamer. Jump to after the break for the ghetto of K-TEL.

Picked Up Pokemon Pre-Order

Well the lameness of cool as progressed even further today as I picked up the pre-order of Pokemon Diamond AND Pearl. One is for a fellow co-worker. The EBGames or Gamestop (whatever its called now) opened up early in one of our local malls. So there I was sitting in the parking lot observing the people congregating at the front entrance of the South Mall. I was quite surprised at the demographics. There was very few kids of youthful age in the group of 40 people. Of course they were accompanied by their parents. There was also parents by themselves picking it up for their kids (I’m assuming). Then there was the shocking number of the long dark haired basement dwelling young adults there to pick up their copy. I guess I somewhat fall into that category except for the long hair and the basement dwelling (I own the whole house basement and all). Continue reading
